hand holding hotspot wifi device

A WiFi hotspot is a device you can use to connect a mobile-enabled device, such as a laptop, smartphone, or tablet, to the internet. The hotspot is portable, so you can connect your device almost wherever you are, like at home, on the bus or in the park.

  • Hotspots may be checked out for one week by any adult user (18+) with a Fairport Harbor Public Library card in good standing.
  • Hotspots are available on a first-come basis and cannot be reserved in advance. Hotspots must be picked up and returned to FHPL in person.
  • Borrowers must sign an Equipment Borrowing Agreement form.
